It’s no surprise to me

It is a well known fact that when a recession hits, the sales of chocolate rise! Therefore it came as no surprise to me when Hershey announced a 13% hike in the price of its product today! A timely intervention, designed to coincide with Valentines Day on the 14th February and the much forecast inevitable “R” word, yes a recession here in the US.

I am sure the increases will be dressed up as a regrettable but necessary reaction to rising transport costs and increasing commodity prices, but now you know the facts, you can decide if this is opportunism on the part of Hershey.

My name is David and I am a chocoholic!!!!

I still have not eaten Haggis... But share the love for chocolate and single malt... as introduced to it by an old friend. Cheers!
